Miriam: A Treasures of the Nile Novel

By Mesu Andrews


The Hebrews call me prophetess, the Egyptians a seer. But I am neither. I am simply a watcher of Israel and the messenger of El Shaddai. When He speaks to me in dreams, I interpret. When He whispers a melody, I sing.

At eighty-six, Miriam had devoted her entire life to loving El Shaddai and serving His people as both midwife and messenger. Yet when her brother Moses returns to Egypt from exile, he brings a disruptive message. God has a new name – Yahweh – and has declared a radical deliverance for the Israelites.

Miriam and her beloved family face an impossible choice: cling to familiar bondage or embrace uncharted freedom at an unimaginable cost. Even if the Hebrews survive the plagues set to turn the Nile to blood and unleash a maelstrom of frogs and locusts, can they weather the resulting fury of the Pharaoh?

Book Takeaway:

We'll never answer every question we have about our infinite God--but we should be glad. If we could, He wouldn't be God.

Why the author wrote this book:

I was fascinated by the first prophetess mentioned in Scripture and wanted to piece together the vignettes we see of her: a girl guarding her baby brother's basket in the Nile, the leader of woman on the other side of the Red Sea, and the woman God disciplines for criticising Moses. Who was she, and why did God choose to use her brothers--and not her--to deliver His people from Egypt?


"Miriam shows readers the concept “if you want to know about God, look at what He has done." Good book to revisit for faith encouragement!"
